Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
Oldham is pleased to announce that its OLCT IR infrared fixed gas detector has been tested according to IEC/EN 60529 and has been awarded the IP67 protection degrees. The tests were conducted by INERIS, one of the two IECEx Certification bodies in France. The design protects the OLCT IR against dust and the effect of immersion in up to one meter of water.
Reinforced ingress protection, stainless steel SS 316L enclosure, dual source, four-beam technology, and heated optics make the OLCT IR one of the most reliable infrared gas detectors available. It is suitable for use in harsh environments such as offshore oil and gas platforms, refineries, LNG/LPG plants, gas terminals, FPSO vessels, gas compressor stations, and gas turbine power plants. A low temperature version allows operation down to -50°C for the harshest industrial environment.
The OLCT IR also holds SIL2 certification according to EN 50402 and IEC/EN 61508. The Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) and the Probability of Failures on Demand (PDF), both calculated by INERIS, are respectively 28 years and 1,6 10-3 with a one-year interval test.
The OLCT IR carries ATEX, IECEx, IN METRO, NEPSI, GOST R and GOST K approvals, and a five-year warranty.
